Open source

As time goes by, the masses seem to be too lazy to create their own platforms and rely instead on big companies to spread their message for them. I think open source and freelancing are the answers. The more information and software are spread freely and generously (but privately), the more we will find true quality of life. »

Social media

Social media–much like anything else on the Internet–may be used for generally three purposes: education, information, or entertainment. Two honest questions: What are YOU using it for and is THAT worth the time your investing into? »

Generally happy

I’m not saying I’m unhappy. I’m generally happy because I have my child and I’m grateful for the chance to take good care of her.

Facebook

‘Even more than it is in the advertising business, Facebook is in the surveillance business.’ It is designed to watch our every move, our every like and dislike, and sell those findings to the highest bidder. For the majority of the 2.1 billion users of Facebook up until now, that has seemed like a price worth paying, in order to connect with friends and family. The wisdom promoted by the tech companies to their users is that privacy is only for those with something to hide. »
